Scott Garcia, Sticky & El-B Play Special Request XIII

The London party comes through with a host of true garage innovators.

Following their Bank Holiday Grime Session, London party Special Request return to Stoke Newington’s Bar-A-Bar basement with one of their biggest line-ups to date. Having represented garage culture in all its forms over the past three years, Special Request has seen the likes of Matt Jam Lamont, Champion, Cooly G, Josey Rebelle, Wookie, Brackles, Mr. Mitch and more grace the turntables in various basement spaces around East London, and their thirteenth party sees Sticky making a return visit alongside Scott Garcia to roll out a two hour set as Foundation.

The man with the golden woodblock snares, and possibly the embodiment of exactly what a stripped garage roller can do, El-B will also be present to deliver a classic 2Step set, whilst Bristol’s Casa Del Vibe resident selector Guppy Slim stands alongside promoters LeClerc & TK in the warm-up slot.

You can stream an hour’s worth of white label garage from Guppy Slim himself as part of the Special Request mix series below – no tracklist on this, it’s Guess The Dub time here, with a wealth of rare garage on offer.

Special Request XIII will be held at Bar A Bar, Stoke Newington on Saturday October 10th. For more info visit the event’s Facebook page and buy £5 advance tickets here.
